A few days ago, WKBT-TV (LaCrosse, Wisconsin) anchor Jennifer Livingston received an e-mail from a viewer who criticized the anchor about her weight.

“I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition has not improved for many years, ” wrote the viewer who went on to chide Livingston questioning whether she felt that she was a “suitable example for the community’s young people.”

But Livingston didn’t back down. Just this morning (Tuesday 10/2/12), Livingston spoke out on the air about the issue saying, “To the person who wrote me that letter – do you think I don’t know that?”

The video is on YouTube and the story has gone viral.
